What makes the Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions series stand out is its focus on all three characteristics that make up this research field – studies from scholars in different countries, with different research questions, relying on different theoretical perspectives. Such a broad, and inclusive, approach to mergers and acquisitions is not easily replicated in academic journals, with much narrower mandates and metrics. The collections published each year provide cutting edge ideas by leading scholars on a global scale.
The Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions series comprises of leading international scholars from a range of disciplines exploring the economic, financial, strategic or organizational behaviour aspects of mergers and acquisitions. A diversity of disciplines, perspectives, countries, topics, issues, methodologies and research questions are represented in each volume. The series explores a wide range of topical issues, from employees’ attitudes toward post-merger integration, to ‘culture fit’, to transitional governance arrangements, to the effects of complexity and post-merger/post-acquisition integration.
